QUESTIONER - II:             DATE ASKED:         WRITTEN RESPONSES:
Anonymous  November 6, 2014  Earle Traynham, Interim Provost

QUESTION SYNOPSIS-II:

It has come to the attention of a number of faculty that some faculty members are not actively participating, such as by only Skyping or phoning in for planned meetings, even ones where they have
a say in the date and time of such meetings. These meetings have included hiring committees, promotion committees, and the review of doctoral candidates as they make their final presentation after approximately five years of dedicated work. If indeed our tenant is that there is “no one like you, and
no place like here” how does such faculty’s behavior in lacking in propriety, follow such a motto. While these behaviors have been brought to the chair of the department, no actions have yet occurred. What is the response from administration of a faculty member who has taken to such “phoning” in their required work with the university?

Responses by FA president, Dr. Chip Klostermeyer on the floor:
Please note that for the following question, that I answered it from the floor as follows. "It is important that faculty follow through on service commitments they make so that the work does not fall only to a few."
